you say Ben Brust…because in Mad-Town, “In Brust We Trust!”
Junior Guard, Ben Brust took the inbound with less than 3 seconds left, dribbled once then launched a shot just inside half court that sent the Kohl Center into a frenzy. Brust hit nothing but net, and tied the game at 60 as the Badgers headed into overtime for the second time this week (the Badgers beat Iowa in double O.T. 74-70 Wednesday).
Brust then hit a 3 pointer in O.T. with less than 40 seconds to give the Badgers the lead for good as Bucky downed the #3 ranked Wolerines 65-63. The win extends the UW’s home winning streak against Michigan to 11, the longest in school history (Michigan has NEVER won at the Kohl Center).
The Badger improve to 17-7 overall and 3rd in the Big 10 at 8-3.
